  1. Automation of Analysis Model Creation

    SBC: Technosoft, Inc            Topic: N06T018

    Although numerical analysis applications have proven to be effective and reasonably accurate, the effort required to develop the associated analysis models remains a challenging and time consuming task. While many meshing tools are currently available, decomposing and manipulating the design geometry and enhancing the topology for mesh construction are manual processes and place the heaviest dema ...

  2. Numerical Simulation of Rocket Exhaust Interaction with Lunar Soil

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: T602

    Rocket plume impingement can cause significant damage and contaminate co-landing spacecraft and surrounding habitat structures during lunar landing operations. CFDRC and the University of Florida will develop an innovative simulation system for predicting surface erosion and debris transport caused by lunar surface rocket plume impingement. This simulation system combines 1) a unified continuum-ra ...

  3. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  4. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...

  5. Design Methodology for Attaching Morphing Components

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: ST061005

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) will continue to establish the understanding of materials and mechanical interaction necessary to develop modeling capabilities, interface design, and fabrication processes for fastening morphing skins. During Phase I, CRG and CU-Boulder were successful in constitutive model development and prediction of m ...

  6. Development of a High Temperature Sensor Based on Transformation-Induced Resistivity Changes in Ordered Alloys

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF06T037

    There is an increasing demand for high temperature sensors that operate accurately and reliably in extreme environments and they are vital in several aerospace applications. This aim was directly addressed by a novel idea where microstructural changes caused by phase transformation and the attendant physical property changes that can be easily measured is used as a sensor. In Phase I of this progr ...

  7. Ballistic Imaging for Dense Spray Diagnostics in Harsh Chemically Reacting Environments

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF06T009

    The primary objective of this Phase-II research effort will be to build, deliver, and test a next-generation time-domain ballistic photon imaging (BPI) system based on ultrafast lasers for characterizing the two-phase combustion region within bi-propellant rocket engines. This will include integration into a rocket facility of choice for the Air Force Office of Scientific Research and the Air For ...

  8. High-current Field Emitter Arrays for Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Innovative Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: AF06T018

    Field-emission electron-emitting arrays hold promise for use in high current-density electron-beam devices as replacement for power consuming thermionic emitters. Large field-emitter arrays, however, are limited in total current due to non-uniformity and resulting instability problems. As a solution to these problems current-limiting devices, such as a field-effect transistor (FET) for each emitte ...

  9. Reduced Nonlinearity Superconducting Thin Films for Transmit and Receive Applications

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: AF06T014

    This STTR Phase II project is directed towards the development of high performance large-area thick YBCO films and microwave devices on suitable single crystal substrates through modified TFA-MOD approach for transmit and receive applications. We propose to continue our successful Phase I project to further increase critical current density of Jc to 3-5 MA/cm2 and lead to state-of-the-art IMD (int ...

  10. Optimization of Polyurea Coatings for Blast and Impact Resistance

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: N08T001

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) proposes to fully develop polyurea coatings for blast and impact resistance. Polyurea coatings show promise for increasing the blast and impact resistance of buildings and vehicles, but further development is necessary to ensure the success of these materials. Currently, there is no method for assessing the suitability of a coating for blast and impact resist ...
